patel on the roof keeping an eye out for anymore asteroids. >> oi, watch out, i am, indeed. nasa says the asteroid passed by just hours after the meteor yitd hit russia is just a coincidence, asteroids are rocky objects sometimes big enough to be called minor planets. we also have meteorites smaller than asteroids but orbit the sun. these are small businesses of an asteroid. if a meteor enters and vaporizes it becomes a shooting star but if it lands on earth we can call it a meteorite. that exploded today. check out this map. it shows us a site of every known meteor landing since 2300 bc. wow it's a stunning image. u.s. meet logical society put this together. other thing is that gorgeous warm winter weather. the question will this continue as many of you make your long holiday weekend plans? i'll be back with the accu-weather forecast and a look at live doppler 7 hd. changes in the forecast. >> thank you so much. >> christopher dorner the former los angeles police officer who went on a killing rampage died from a single gunshot wound tolt head according to investigators. they added it

. nasa reporting it appeared brighter than the sun. traveling at around 40,000 miles an hour, fast enough that if you were to hitch a ride, it would get from you new york to l.a. in four minutes time flat. early estimates were it weighed ten tons. nasa says now more like 7,000. it ripped through the air like a blade through fabric triggering sonic booms and an immense shock wave when it exploded. when it shattered miles above the earth, we're told it released 20 times the energy, more powerful than the hiroshimo bomb in japan. it was powerful enough to knock down doors and shatter windows across one city. officials say more than 1,000 people went for medical treatment. flying glass blamed for most of those injuries. one witness saying when older women in the neighborhood spotted it, they started screaming that the world was ending. and just about everybody seemed a little freaked out. >> it was very confusing because the building was shaking a little bit, so initially i thought it was an earthquake. but then i knew i heard this loud bang, so i thought some sort of explosion, either a gas
of flying glass and debris. tonight we have learned there was no warning. more on that from nasa in a moment. we begin with kirit radia in moscow. >> reporter: it came out of nowhere. a bright speck in the sky, soon streaking across the horizon, followed by an almost apocalyptic scene. a blinding flash of light, and then all hell broke loose. [ explosion ] dizzying explosions, shattering windows, knocking these office workers to the ground. these students were lucky, protected by curtains from the flying glass. and these men barely escaped the blast. [ explosion ] in the streets -- pandemonium. terrified residents thought the world was ending. people started to panic. somebody screamed, the end of the earth, he says. the chaos of the meteor captured on cell phones and the dashboard cameras of cars, so popular here in russia. the blast was so powerful, it knocked down a wall at this factory. in all, over 1,200 people were injured, mostly from broken glass. 3,000 buildings damaged, over a million square feet of glass shattered. many were injured after going to the window to check out the flash
bomb dropped on hiroshima in 1945. no wonder nasa is keeping a closing watch for anything like it headed our way. at this moment, that near miss asteroid is now on its way out of the earth moon system. at 4 a.m. tomorrow, it will head outside the orbit of the moon. you can't see it without a powerful telescope. the magnitude is just about 7.4 well beyond naked iviesibility. but they will have telescopes at nasa you can watch it online. in the meantime, elizabeth, i have to tell you, what an extraordinary coincidence. we are sitting here waiting for this big near miss asteroid and then the real thing actually smashes into russia and it doesn't only smash into russia. it smashes as the biggest fall in 100 years and that last one in tunguska in 1908 was only 3,000 miles from this one. that's the longest astronomical hole in one you can possibly imagine. >> the video was incredible. >> reporter: incredible. >> i want to ask you, like, how often does this sort of thing happen asteroids and meteorites? how often do they come this close to earth?
, nasa has been charged by congress with keeping a 24-hour-a-day seven-day-a-week watch on the skies, and they're doing this principally with three observatories in new mexico, california and puerto rico, that have discovered about 98% of all the asteroid we know that are out there. >> axelrod: if they identify a potential threat what can then be done by way of a defense system? well, that's a real possibility. you don't want to destroy these things. they're too dangerous and it's too impractical. what you can do is deflect them. nasa has already perfected the art of landing on asteroids orbiting asteroids and we even fired an impactor into the side of a comet to study the debris. you can do the same impact mod welan asteroid and speed it up or slow it down by as little as a few centimeters a second. that way had it arrives at earth's orbit we've already passed by or haven't arrived at the rendezvous yet. >> axelrod: just a fraction. >> just a fraction. >> axelrod: in south africa today the extended family of olympic runner oscar pistorius came to his defense claiming the state's own

are in a higher orbit than that, but unlike the russian meteor, nasa did see this space rock coming. >> nasa's currently studying about 9,000 of these near-earth asteroids. about 1,800 of them are fairly large and those are of very particular interest to us. >> now, overnight a bright flash was spotted streaking above the bay area sky. you might have seen it. and as the sky lit up, so did the phones in our newsroom. e-mails and tweets came pouring into kpix5. check that out. people concerned about a streak of light in the sky, and this youtube user posted this video of what may be a bright blue flash over the peninsula. we haven't been able to confirm the accuracy of that video, but, again, it was posted on youtube overnight from santa clarita to fairfield, facebook and twitter users reported seeing some type of flash just before 8:00 p.m. and nasa tells us there's no connection between the three of them, it was simply a cosmic coincidence. now, brian, you study these sorts of things. what's going on? it was kind of weird in 24 hours we saw all this. >> i

waves hit us. >> reporter: >> a nasa expert joined us on fox 5 news at 5:00 and said this is extraordinarily rare. >> i have to be honest, will. i am not wear of anything in the history books talking -- not aware of anything in the history books talking about this many people being hurt by a single event. >> ironically the event happened the same day an astroid buzzed by earth closer than an astroid has since scientists started monitoring them 15 years ago. it missed earth by more than 17,000 miles coming closer than weather and communication satellites that orbit our planet. >> they not related. they're going to do more studies, but right now nasa said they don't think it's related. >> so the meteor and astroid just a strange coincidence according to scientists. in case you're wondering as we did, what's the deal with all those dashcams in the cars of average folks like you and me? turns out they're popular in russia for several reasons including disputes over traffic accidents. insurance fraud is apparently a big problem there. we're also looking at how this story f
as an asteroid that came exceedingly close to earth, at least in space terms. as this nasa animation shows, the asteroid was just over 17,000 miles away from earth, traveling at about eight miles per second, actually inside a ring of television and weather satellites that surround the planet. named da-14, the asteroid was half the size of a football field. it passed, we can happily report, without incident. here to tell us about both events is astrophysicist and author neil degrasse tyson, director of the hayden planetarium in new york city. let's start with what happened in russia. how unusual was that in terms of size and impact? >> well, we couldn't know precisely how common that would be. all we can do is sort of look back at other sort of reported such events. for example, there was an air blast that happened in the airspace over india and pakistan back in 1990s. which happened to occur while they were in intense conversations about their nuclear buildup of arm ament. and so such a blast mimics greatly what would happened with the nuclear blast. it is an instant deposit of energy in t
yesterday. nasa calls this a once in a century event. a meteor, pretty sizeable one, as a matter of fact, screamed out of the sky and slammed to earth. more than 1,000 people were hurt and thousands of buildings damaged. cnn's phil black is in russia. he hit the road today, trying to find the spot where the meteor landed. >> are we're walking on a frozen lake. it's about a 90-minute drive west. we're here because locals say a big fragment from the meteor punched through the ice. and is now sitting at the bottom of the lake. [ speaking in russian ] >> that was a very firm no. these police officers said it is prohibited for us to be here, to shoot video here, to try and walk any further. if if part of that meet orrite came down there, where those vehicles are, as locals say it did, the russian authorities don't want us or anyone else to see it. the meteor's final descent through the atmosphere was seen by people all across this region. at this school, students came outside to look at the trail of smoke it left in the sky. one student captured the moment on his phone. what were you thinking
. >> it's no small he skprent shows you the destructive nature of the objects. >> what nasa says it was not was part of this asteroid. it buzzed clo to earth today. 100 tons races towards earth every day. national safety counsel estimates you're twice as likely to be struck by lightning than hit by an asteroid but three times more likely than being injured by fire works. 20,000 troops have been sent to help residents. those people are spending a night without windows temperatures in that part of russia are well below zero tonight. >> a giant asteroid talking about has nothing to do with the meteor that hit russia. that one hurled past earth today just before 11:30 our time. astroners used binoculars to watch the point of light speeding across the sky. >> breaking news in antioch. sky 7 caught the scene of what we believe is a shooting in a gas station or perhaps a burger king restaurant near dear valley high school. a person has been handcuffed after the scene. the investigation station has been roped off. the call came in as a shooting at burger king. police have not told fuss a
